Finished project – Borage socks

I’ve been so immersed in my sample knitting for travelknitter (latest: three socks down and fourth one on the needles) that I’d almost forgotten about my swiftly finished Borage socks. Here they are, though – the sun in my Mum’s lounge was killer this afternoon and I couldn’t miss the chance to take some shots….

Freedom and cables – free hat pattern

It might still be bloody cold, but NEVER FEAR. This easy hat with dense squishy cables will knit up quickly and keep your ears warm all the way through the cold months until Spring finally pitches up. If you’re an experienced knitter then you’ll knit this up in no time, and if you’re a beginner…

Never not socking

You GUYS, there have been some very exciting sock developments chez felinity in the last week. Firstly, I’ve finished the Borage socks (proper post to come). This is a pair where I’m not entirely sure if I love them, now that they’re done, but they are certainly soft and comfortable. And then, an intriguing parcel…

Finished project – Freedom and cables

Quickest of quick FO posts, but I have now found the right pompom* for my raspberry cabled hat, and I LOVE IT. Those cables and the fold-up brim make this hat super-warm and cosy. And this yarn has a touch of silk luxe, which does no harm whatsoever. Better photos (of the striped version too)…

Once upon a sock in Feb 18 – flowers and hat

Whoops! I was all set to post on schedule yesterday, and then (believe it or not) I got distracted by work and before I realised it it was too late for me to photograph my first finished sock from my current pair. Anyway, sorry for being a day late, but look! My first Borage sock…

January warms

Hello hello! Gosh, January is kind of bleak, isn’t it? We live just south of London and have mostly had the drizzly cold grey end of the weather rather than the apocalyptic snow I know lots of you have faced, but that’s been bad enough. The very cold but clear days are glorious, while the…

Once upon a sock in Jan 18 – plans plans plans

Hello sock fans (sockettes?). I would love to show you some exciting sock progress today. However what with my flurry of recent finished projects I don’t actually have any new socks on the go just yet (the Twisted Soul socks are the only ones on the needles, but they haven’t changed since the end of…

Finished project – Gonna need sunglasses socks

Bye bye 2017. You have not been my kindest year. You have, however, left me with some very vibrant socks. I basically see these as my ‘fvck you, 2017’ socks. Bought the yarn a few days after Dad died, worked on them while Mum was recovering from her operation and after we got news about…

Finished project – Belyse Gloves

This post is a bit of a gamble because these are a (shh) Christmas present, but I am reasonably sure that the intended recipient is too busy with the run-up to Christmas and parenting small children to be reading here. It’s just a quick post, anyway. As documented already, I had a bit of a…

Finished project – Helical socks

I am well overdue a few finished project posts. Here is an easy one – my immensely fun, enormously satisfying, reminders-of-Canada Helical socks. Nothing very fancy about these, but the helical stripes were a new technique to me. I can’t explain why it’s so satisfying knitting stripes like this but it just is. There are…

Once upon a sock in December – rainbows and retrospectives

Late again, but posting this month! It has been another tough week for my family, and the introduction of being back at work most of the time has meant knitting has taken a little dip, but I do have a bit of progress and a little retrospective to share with you. (Also, watch this space…
